FPL Gameweek 8 Tips | @FPL_JianBatra –

“Kevin De Bruyne. Good set of fixtures in the next three, an ultra differential and well he’s just Kevin De Bruyne. Rare opportunity to have a player like himself with such a low ownership.”

FPL Gameweek 8 Tips | @BigManBakar

“I would suggest fantasy managers to wait till at least the Friday press conferences this week. Lots of information is yet to come, and I believe any money lost in team value is worth the extra information we might get.”

FPL Gameweek 8 Tips | @HollyShand_

“Don’t play the wildcard just because everyone else is. Have a look at your starting XI for this week and if you are happy with it all, keep that wildcard for an emergency..”

FPL Gameweek 8 Tips | @FPLMatthew

“If you’re thinking of wildcarding this week, do a quick analysis of whether you might actually be better doing so next Gameweek.”

FPL Gameweek 8 Tips | @WGTA_FPL

“All aboard: Man City’s defence is going to be increasingly popular. Grab your ticket whilst the prices remain fairly decent!”

FPL Gameweek 8 Tips | @FFH_Fergi

“Be careful of getting rid of players just for Gameweek 8 when they have good ongoing fixtures. Rudiger and Raphinha in particular are superb options for Gameweek 9 and onwards. Utilise your bench the best you can and play the long game.”

FPL Gameweek 8 Tips | @Hibbo_FPL

“My must-have player for Gameweek 8 is Manchester City defender João Cancelo (£6.2m). Cancelo ranks top among defenders for completed final third passes (128) and attempted through balls (6). Cancelo’s clean sheet & assist potential screams multiple avenues to points”.

FPL Gameweek 8 Tips | @RichClarkeFPL

“If on a wildcard this week, remember you are setting up a team for the core part of the season.. through to around Gameweek 30; you still need a balanced structure, a variety of price points and a strong bench if going heavy on Chelsea/Man City assets”

FPL Gameweek 8 Tips | @pras_fpl

“If you’re on Wildcard, have a plan in place for what you’ll do if 15 mins before deadline you see Jota and/or Trent Alexander-Arnold in the line-ups (assuming we get early team news). No matter what, don’t be making last minute unplanned adjustments to a team you put 2 weeks of thought into.”

FPL Gameweek 8 Tips | @FFNinja_

“Don’t be afraid to double up, in defence or attack, as opposed to focusing on coverage and diversification. If the players provide value (Man City defence & Brentford attack), back yourself and go for it!”
